Luxury brands come together to fight climate change with the Fashion Pact
More than 30 of the world’s largest fashion brands take part in the new initiative, Fashion Pact, aimed to fight global climate crisis and protect biodiversity and the oceans.
The pact will be presented to the heads of state during the G7 meeting in Biarritz, France.
This forward thinking initiative is led by French luxury house, Kering, and aims to reduce the negative impact the fashion industry has on our planet. But how are they hoping to do just that?
The brands want to reduce micro-fiber ocean pollution created by consumers by washing synthetic materials, and want to ban single use plastics by 2030.
The project also aims to use renewable energy sources across operations by 2030.
The fashion industry is known to be one of the most damaging to the environment and according to the French Ministry of Ecology, 6 percent of global greenhouse emissions comes from textile industries.
Some of the brands paricipating in the project include Salvatore Ferragamo, Ralph Lauren, Prada, Burberry,Chanel,Giorgio Armani, H&M, Nike and many more.
